Janet Jackson is said to be pregnant with her first child.

A source shared the news to Entertainment Tonight, but the singer is yet to publicly confirm it.

The star – who turns 50 on May 16 – postponed her Unbreakable tour last month to start a family with husband Wissam Al Mana.

‘We’re in the second leg of the tour and there actually has been a sudden change,’ she told her fans via a video posted to Twitter on April 6.

‘I thought it was important that you be the first to know. My husband and I are planning our family, so I’m going to have to delay the tour.’

‘Please, if you could try and understand that it’s important that I do this now,’ Jackson asked of her fans.


The news followed two previous postponed dates.

On Christmas Eve, she announced a delay in her North American tour, saying that she needed an urgent operation, and gave no other clarification other than to deny rumors she had cancer.

She later called off a European tour and had been due to resume performances on May 14 in Las Vegas.

Jackson secretly married retailing tycoon Al Mana, 41, in 2012, but didn’t confirm they’d wed until early 2013.


Jackson last year released Unbreakable, her first album since the 2009 death of her brother, Michael Jackson aged 50.

The King of Pop had highly publicised dramas he tried to start a family.

He eventually had two children with Debbie Rowe, who worked at his dermatologist’s office and a third child with an undisclosed surrogate.

  • Wow, congrats to Janet Jackson!


  • Congratulations on your dream of becoming a mother come true


  • Congrats to Janet, hoping for an easy pregnancy.


  • If she’s pregnant, then it’s no wonder she’s cancelling stuff. Good luck to them.


  • Yes, she surely needs to be careful with her tours. Being pregnant for the first time at 50, carries indeed quite some risks.


  • I hope she is putting her tour on hold for the duration if she is pregnant. Pregnancies at 40 or over carry more risks. Her hectic lifestyle on tour may tire her too much as her pregnancy advances.
    ……if the report is true.


  • Congratulations to her.


  • Congratulations to Janet and wissam


  • Congratulations! She doesn’t look 50 at all! I hope she won’t have any problem during her pregnancy!


  • I agree she left it a little late, nearly 50? i think thats too old honestly.


  • Oh wow…..good for her. How amazing and here is hoping all goes well for her.
    I can 100% understand her putting her tour on hold.


  • Congratulations to Janet and Wissam. I hope all goes well for them and their baby.


  • I heard this rumour a little while back now. I can’t believe Drs help women have children at such advanced ages. If it was a good idea, Mother Nature would have let us do it naturally. The power of money huh? There’s a reason why we stop being fertile. Good luck Janet, the child will want for nothing, congrats
